his home at Plymouth.
On the 8th of September, 1886, occurred the marriage of Mr. Wandersleben and Miss Amelia Westendorf, a daughter of
Christian Westendorf. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Wandersleben two children have been born, a son and a daughter: Oscar, who
died in infancy, and Wilma.
In the same year of his marriage, Mr. Wandersleben, in company with his brother, Henry F., established the
Nordwestliche Post, published at Plymouth. The paper is a seven-column quarto Democratic weekly, which they have
conducted successfully for nearly seven years.
Henry F. Wandersleben, junior partner of Wandersleben Bros., was born in Plymouth, June 1, 1859. His education was
obtained in the public schools of the city of Plymouth, and on the completion of his school work, Mr. Wandersleben
learned the printer's trade. In 1886, in company with his brother, C. F., he founded the Nordwestliche Post, at

Wandersleben was born in Plymouth, March 20, 1868. Of this union two children have been born, Hilda and Ada.
In his political views, Mr. Wandersleben espouses the principles of the Democratic party. The Nordwestliche Post is
also Democratic. It is a popular German paper, read quite largely throughout Sheboygan County, and one that has
steadily increased its circulation from the time of its first issue. Its publishers are wide-awake and popular
journalists. In connection with the publication of their paper, they are doing a good jobbing business. Anything in
that line is given prompt and careful attention.
